WOLA: Advocacy for Human Rights in the Americas
Program Theme

Justice and Police Reform in Mexico

Rampant corruption, inadequate accountability mechanisms, and weak police and judicial systems contribute to the ongoing violence and insecurity in Mexico. The failure to effectively investigate and prosecute crimes has resulted in the widespread violation of human rights while facilitating the growth of organized criminal organizations in the country. WOLA promotes comprehensive reforms to Mexico’s institutions that both protect citizen security and respect rights.
